BRYAN IN FIGHT FOR HIS POLITICAL LIFE IN NEBRASKA Great Commoner to Battle with Allied Opponents on Floor of State Convention WILL APPEAL TO DELEGATES Struggle Hinges on County Op tion and Indorsement of Candidates [Associated Press] GRAND ISLAND, Nebr.. July 24.— Democrats of Nebraska will lipid their platform convention ln this city Tues day and It promises to be of greater Interest than any gathering v of the kind .held in this state for many years. That there will be a contest to secure a county option plank in the platform Is admitted by every leader ln the Democratic state organization and that contest will -be carried on by leaders who heretofore have agreed in every way on what Democratic plat forms should contain. .William J. Bryan, for the lirst time since lit; took up the leadership of -he Democra tic party, will be opposed by lormer associates Within his own state. The fight for and against county option has become an open* one. Mr. .Bryan and his friends are actively en gaged in an attempt to secure a county option plank, while Congress man Hitchcock of Omaha and Mayor James C. Dahlman, also of that city, supported by Governor ghallenberger, are equally active in an effort to se cure a declaration against such a plank. • ' . . The situation Is considered an un usual one, because thu men who at present are most actively opposing Mr. Bryan were formerly his strongest supporters. This condition, considered with the fact that tho campaign for the selection of a state ticket and tho recommending of a candidate for United States. Senator has taken on many different angles, has given Im petus to a political struggle In Ne braska seldom If ever before witnessed. FIGHTS FOB COUNTY. OITIOX Congressman Hitchcock has been for several' months an avowed candidate for United States Senator. He has stated-his position as being opposed to county option until the people of the state, under an Initiative and referen dum law, shall declare specifically for it. There is littlo doubt that the.anti county option men will present such a plank and that it will bo heartily op posed by Mr. Bryan and his friends. Mr. Bryan has always been given a place on the resolutions committee when he attended state conventions and his policies have always prevailed In the writing of platforms. That ho will bo accorded the •nine courtesy of appointment at Tuesday's convention la generally admitted, although it Is be lieved there will be an overwhelming majority opposed to him on the ques tion of county option. it is now apparent that he will carry the fight to tho floor of the convention, and there will make a plea- for a straight county option plank. Six hundred of the 800 delegate., to the convention are either instructed or are known to be opposed to such a plank and extreme interest centers on what effect Mr. Brian's speech on the con vention floor will have on the majority. OPPOSES FORM I. It FIUKM>S Kiehard L. Metcalfe, associated with Mr. Bryan in the publication pf the latter'! paper, announced his candi dacy for United States senator at the last moment, in opposition to Congress man Hitchcock. He lias received the unqualified indorsement of Mr. Bryan. Both Bryan and Metcalfe were former ly employed by Hitchcock. All three have been closely associated in the political world until now. There still remains In Nebraska a considerable number of Democrats who called themselves the "gold wing" of tho party four years ago. and who have never become reconciled to Mr. Bryan's leadership. These men have become strong partisans with the leaders who are opposing Mr. Bryan at this time and have made the cause of Congress man Hitchcock and his political asso ciates their own They openly declare that the tlnt_>' has come when Mr. Bryan should step down and out as leader of his party and aro directing their efforts to that end. Throe candi dates are making a fight for the guber natorial nomination. They me Gov ernor Shallenbergor, Mayor Dahltnan of Omaha and W. R. Patrick of South Omaha, a rnembTr <ir"t.io last legisla ture. Patrick is the Bryan candidate; Governor Shallenberger is making Ids campaign^oll his two years' record In office and Mayor Dahlman, who stands squarely for "personal liberty," is making a particularly strong fight against county option. The primaries occur August 2, a. week after the con vention. ' ' ' ' ■ Another Important state issue is the question of the removal of the state capltol.

Mr. Taft's - strained ankle, after a night in compresses, was improved to day and his limp seemed less painful than on yesterday. All danger of ser ious consequences from the injury ap pears to have passed, and while the president may have to give up golf for a few days, the plans for the re mainder of the cruise, which ends next Thursday afternoon at Beverly, will not otherwise be. Interfered with. At Ellsworth the president and his entire party attended services at the Con gregational church. . . .

Injury of eighteen per sons, four seriously. The accident oc cured late yesterday, but the remote ness of the place enabled the suppres sion of the news until late today, when some of the Injured arrived in this j city. - Those seriously hurt are: Mrs. A.

BEND, Imi.. July 24.Strikers attempted to derail eastbound passenger train No. 8 Ibis afternoon nt Olivers, the first station nt which Grand Trunk east bound trains stop in passim* through South Bend. The engineer of the train noticed the turned .witch signal in time to stop his train and thereby probably prevented injury if not loss of life to the passengers. Hinting in the local yards began last night and has been spasmodic today. One man, 3, l-'reel, of this city, was seri ously wounded by John Tack of Battle Creek, Mich., an employe of a private detective agency assisting; the railroad. Four others were arrested. (Associated Press) MONTREAL, July 24.—The attempts of MacKenzie King, minister of labor, to effect a settlement of the Grand Trunk strike have fallen through, at least for the present, the Grand Trunk management taking the view that the time for arbitration has passed and all that the company requires in order to resume the full operation of the road is the protection lor its new men to which It is legally entitled. The mes sage conveying this information to Mr. King was sent tonight and read: "Your message of 23rd received. While as you know, from the many conferences urging your action before the strike took place and from our offer repeatedly urged upon the com mittee, we were desirous of arbitration and so avoiding tho existing trouble, time for such action has now passed, and it is only necessary that we should have the protection to which we are entitled to enable us to resume the full operation of the Charles M. Hayes." TO HEOI'KN SHOPS Coupled with this announcement of the company that the time has passed for arbitration comes the statement that on Monday the shops of the en tire system will be reopened, that in structions will bo Issued to agents once more to take freight and that way freights will be put on and the mani fest freight service increased. In ad dition to this it is announced by the officials that some of the former em ployes who went out on Monday last are reporting for work. The answer of Vice President Mur dock to this is: "We are perfectly satisfied with the way things are going, and if It is to be a fight to a finish I do not know that I could suggest an Improvement under existing conditions from our point of view. As matters stand the traveling public is being fairly well taken care of. while freight Is tied up. The report of A. Kennedy of the en gineers' brotherhood to us is that only 10 per cent of the Grand Trunk en gineers are on their regular runs, the remaining 90 per cent being idle." Despite Mr. Murdock's assurance, misgivings are beginning to develop among the men, who see the positions they once held threatened by the progress the company is making. This was shown at tin- meeting of the men today, and the suggestion was plainly made to the leaders that action was necessary in order to hold the strikers together. GOVERNOR DECLINES TO CALL OUT MILITIA INDIANAPOLIS, July 24.—Governor Marshall tonight declined to send troops to South Bend upon a request by message from the superintendent of the Grand Trunk railway. The gover nor told- the railway official to apply to the sheriff of tho county for assistance, saying th^t in the event of that official falling to do his duty action would be taken by the gover nor. Later a message came from Sher iff Orr, in which he told the governor that trains were moving and that ha could handle the situation. GRAND TRUNK STARTS TORONTO FREIGHT TRAIN TORONTO, Out., July 24.—The claims of the Grand Trunk railroad that mat ters are assuming better shape wan borne out today by the arrival and departure of four freight trains front Toronto. Crews have been secured to run all passengers, mixed and way freight trains, and eight of the latter will start tomorrow for London, To ronto, Stratford and Niagara Falls.
